I feel like my week is just starting, even though today is Tuesday. That’s because yesterday was our Canadian Thanksgiving, which is a statutory holiday here. Of course, I worked anyway! But creating isn’t always ‘work’; sometimes it’s the most enjoyable part of a day. Today’s new project includes a new Lavinia stamp called Fairy Dust Silhouette. I enjoyed doing some ink blending and stamping for this one.
FAIRY DUST SILHOUETTE
I’m building up a nice selection of Lavinia Stamps for myself! I love the animal images, and whimsical nature of the stamps. I love the background stamps; the the swirls, circles & other shapes add so much interest. Here’s my card for today.
I love the little Mini Pipin stamp – such a cute little rabbit!
Start with a piece of smooth white cardstock. Use a blending tool to apply Broken China Distress Oxide ink to the whole panel. Next, blend on Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide to the outer 1/2 inch. Now, set up this panel in your MISTI, or other stamp platform. Set up the Fairy Dust Silhouette stamp about half way up, on the right side of the panel. Cover the stamp with Nocturne ink, and stamp. Now, clean off the stamp, and re-ink just the wings and fairy dust with Versamark ink. Stamp on top of the black image. Remove the panel from the MISTI, and cover the Versamark with gold embossing powder. Set with a heat tool.
Now stamp the Mini Pipin image in Nocturne ink below the fairy dust. This makes it look like he’s being sprinkled on by the fairy. Next, tear a piece of copy paper to create a mask, and blend on Dusty Concord Distress Oxide, to create a ‘ground’ under the images. Add another one towards the bottom right corner. Now, stamp the Mystic Swirl stamp at the top of the panel, and the Keeping Faith stamp partially on the left side, both in Ranger Archival Dusty Concord ink. Stamp the Bluebells in Faded Jeans Archival ink, at the bottom of the panel.
LAYER IT UP & EMBELLISH
Now, layer the front panel onto a piece of Gina K. Gold cardstock, with fun foam or foam tape. Attach this to a dark blue card base. To finish off the card front, add some Gina K. Sequins – Clear Quartz Solid sequins.
I like this just as it is, without an added sentiment.
I had fun creating this card with my new Fairy Dust Silhouette stamp, and the Mini Pipin stamp is a new one for me, too. Do you have Lavinia stamps that you like to create with? If you’d like to add to your stash, I’ve included links for the supplies I used to create this card. Have fun creating!
